Kevin Gausman Faces South Carolina In Game 1 Of Doubleheader

LSU sophomore ace Kevin Gausman is set to face South Carolina All-American Michael Roth in the first game of a double-header between the two SEC powerhouses on Friday. Gausman, a Colorado native and Grandview High School alum, has started to turn heads this season.

It was the first complete game by an LSU pitcher in over a year.
